Re: Do you struggle with identity?

Your discussion about moral certainty and all that part of your answer does not address the points I made in my previous post. I understand you think it's probable that vegans are likely to be better people in general, or that by being that one thing other good things follow. But it's a partial view...

Re: Do you struggle with identity?

How do you not notice contradicting yourself like this? Statements like this are all about quantification, otherwise you could not say the vegan is worse (finitely or "infinitely" :roll: ). I've already granted you in the post above that we can logically speak of morality in quantitative terms, and...

Re: 3 years vegan, constipation

You have recommended alt-med and had some very disparaging remarks about doctors' ignorance clearly intended to shake the OP's confidence in mainstream medicine, and you've explicitly recommended seeking help from a non-doctor and explicitly recommended against mainstream medication. No, you are bi...

Re: 3 years vegan, constipation

brimstoneSalad I have never suggested that the OP should *not* see a doctor, please do not put words in my mouth as you did several times here above. As for the rest, you are entitled to your, I am sure very informed, opinion, and the OP will be able to verify for her-/himself any of your claims, a...

Re: Do you struggle with identity?

OBVIOUSLY that is something that doesn't happen in practice, that was not my question. Don't dodge the question. Obviously you agree that if all other things were equal the person choosing animal suffering is being less moral in doing so. Which is to say YES morality IS fundamentally quantifiable. ...

Re: 3 years vegan, constipation

You can do all of the tests you want, but if the science isn't there to interpret the results of those tests and prescribe evidence based treatment then all you're doing is wasting people's money and giving them false hope -- one of the most common harms of pseudoscience for its victims.

Re: 3 years vegan, constipation

You might have some underlying gut issue that was at the origin of your constipation even before going vegan. You should have your gut microbiome checked, and you want a specialist for that because most doctors are lagging behind on this. Here are some examples of tests that you might be able to get...

Re: Do you struggle with identity?

Red Why? I might need to read more into Psychology (which of course, varies from person to person). I don't know why you're so adamant about this concept of attaching identity, or why you think it's such a necessity for you. Watch this clip from CGP Grey, maybe it'll help? https://youtu.be/tlsU_YT9...

Re: Do you struggle with identity?

Red sorry for the belated answer. Well, why would you not be the person to do that? Like I said, view yourself doing the things you do out of a moral reason. So instead of making it a 'rule,' you can rephrase it like: 'I am the kind of person who does not see animals as food or property, because it...

Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

Another misunderstanding on your part. I don't know how you misunderstood this because I thought I was pretty clear, but maybe something lost in translation. When we look at something like total risk of injury, ranging from stubbing your toe to dying, and we say X has higher total risk of total inj...
